it doesnt offer much in way of surprises. for a drum and bass song its very novice but musically its good enough to make me think you play an instrument.
and never wrote a drum and bass tune before. is that so?
the samples youve used are a tad plain and the programming isnt very funky so the overall sound falls flat. in my opinion.

Your right this is, as i mentioned my first dnb song and your also right with the instrument i play E-Bass but in a jazz band ^^.
I used clean Samples from vec 3 and im already on my next tune ^^ maybe you have some tipps for me before i get started.

Just keep at it, if that is your first dnb track, then you'll be good enough someday.
Just sit down and listen an hour to your favorite dnb artists or maybe even some artist from forums like these to find inspiration.
Just listen to other tracks and find the way how they do 'it'.

I think my problems are also my vsts i just got Nexus and a free plugin called La-basslines which is really good for dnb i think
But for melodys i think nexus is like the house, hardstyle and handsup type but not that good for drum and bass do you know any good vsts? I use Ableton btw.

those are great songs, the point is study the songs that you would want to have written. not sure of the grammar here but i hope you understand. study long study long like snoop said.

Ok im going to study these two songs now until i got every sound in it out and analysed :D and till I got the complete buildup

So Do you use vsts or do you just work with reason?

vsti's most people use are: massive, albino, z3ta im sure there are more - but i like to use very simple synths like 3xosc and play with the lfos / effects to see what i can create :)
vstis are much more comfortable to use and you can get a pretty good sound very very quickly

plus presets are always a good starting point

Sylenth1 is massive, you can get some hard filthy basslines out of it, as well as nice leads and pads.
I use NI Absynth a lot, which is great for atmospheric sounds.
The Albino and NI Massive as said above are great too.

Then I started using the Alchemy VSTi a lot more last days, great one with the 8 different FX slots below which can be automated smoothly.

Next to that I started working in Reason couple of months ago, great piece of software.
So working hard one tracks in both reason and FL now, can't stick with one program though.
